    How to Add or Remove Optimize Drives context menu in Windows 10

    information   Information
    One of the best ways you can improve your PC's performance is by optimizing the drive. Windows includes features to help optimize the different types of drives that PCs use today. No matter which type of drive your PC uses, Windows automatically chooses the optimization that's right for your drive.

    By default, Optimize Drives, previously called Disk Defragmenter, runs automatically on a weekly schedule at the time set in automatic maintenance. But you can also optimize drives on your PC manually.

    This tutorial will show you how to add or remove Optimize Drives to the context menu of all drives for all users in Windows 10.

    You must be signed in as and administrator to be able to add or remove the Optimize Drives context menu.
